Our Saving Grace
The environmental enthusiasts have also asked that we consider our land. "The crop is simply exhausting the soil, soon all the nutrients and minerals will be stripped from the ground, making it unusable." says local tree-hugger, Benjamin Smith. All they are asking is that planters take some precaution when replanting crops each season, so that we won't have to expand to the back-country for planting and cultivating.
While our recent tobacco exports are rather high, the time will come when we need more land and people to help expand and grow this new industry that could really set our colony apart.
